Behind the Scenes of a Pledge Drive As you read this, you are probably aware that we are somewhere deep in our on-air pledge drive (and wondering when it'll be over!). I thought I'd take this opportunity to make the connection between the pledge you make—and what happens in our "back office" in order to get your thank you gift to you. Before the pledge drive begins, Juanita and Chris the KCSM Web Team are working frantically to make sure all the gifts are on the pictured: Lavine Mar, Fulfillment supervisor web, and that the pledge process is as easy as possible to use. As pledges are made, the Web Team are forwarding information about totals and gifts to the on air announcers, and the fulfillment and membership departments. When the pledge drive is in full swing, the membership department, headed by Medelline Lowe and her team of student assistants, Prakashni, Kagure, and Vernice begin the task of charging all the credit card pledges that have been called in, mailing out invoices to those wishing to pay by check, and then updating the membership database with the most current member information such as changes of address, new expiration dates and mailing out our monthly On Air Guide. As the checks come in, Sam Haun, our "money guy" makes sure they are deposited and the proper information is sent to membership for processing. He always appreciates it when folks send back their invoice. Trying to match up checks to existing pledges—with no other information—is a challenge to say the least! As a very small station, we cannot afford to have a surplus of pledge items on hand, and therefore are unable to pre-order from our vendors. Instead, our Fulfillment Supervisor Lavine Mar is anxiously watching as the pledges come in so she can quickly place orders to our vendors. As soon as the items arrive in our offices, Lavine, along with her student assistant Joshna work to shipped them right back out to our members. We try to thank, process and ship over 3,000 pledges and gifts each drive. Sometimes we do a great job, sometimes not so great. But if you're ever wondering what happened to your gift, where your guide is, or why you're suddenly getting three copies of your renewal notice—please don't hesitate to give us a call! We're small, we're here and we'd love to talk with you! Our membership phone number is (650) 524-6921, or you can send us a message at email@example.com. And, as always, thanks for your support! Sinclair Crockett Business and Fundraising Manager

JAZZ PROFILES WITH NANCY WILSON Monday at 9 pm 2/1
Basie: The Man & Music, Part 3
Willie The Lion Smith A musician's musician whose original approach to the keyboard has made him the envy of virtually every pianist in jazz. He was part of the Harlem stride scene perfected by pianists James P. Johnson and Thomas Fats Waller. This show features rare tape of Smith (pictured) talking and playing.
2/15 John Coltrane, Part 1 No modern jazz musician has a sound more influential yet less attainable than saxophonist John Coltrane (picutred). His pure tone was established by the mid-50s, playing in Miles Davis' hard bop quintet. Coltrane's career was characterized by his constant, exponential advancement in improvisational technique and ideas. His sound reached its peak in his quartet of the 60s, which has served as a model for modern jazz ensembles for the last forty years.
2/22 John Coltrane, Part 2 John Coltrane's never-ending quest for musical improvement and self-awareness distinguished his playing and compositions in the 60s. It was driven by an increasing spirituality, most potently unveiled in his 1964 recording A Love Supreme. Coltrane later created music of great turbulence and ecstasy, and he remains a powerful inspiration to artists of all disciplines.

J a z z 9 1 S tat i o n N e w s C onstruction
February finds all of the KCSM-FM staff in the final throes of our winter membership drive.Â Â Remember that we count of each of you to keep your jazz station alive and well! We are also in the middle of a construction zone on campus. Thanks to the voters in San Mateo County, a bond measure has funded most of the construction projects you see on campus. When the spring semester began, a major area on the south side of the campus became accessible. The main Health and Wellness building will open next month, and our building's restrooms are being remodeled! Yes, that graffiti from the Nixon years is gone, and much nicer restrooms should be completed by March. My apologies to those of you that came during our pledge drive and had to go to adjacent buildings for restroom facilities. The Spring drive will be better! pictured: hallway at kcsm under construction
We are doing some of our own remodeling in the FM studios; moving equipment around and consolidating some processes. This work should be completed around March as well, and I hope some of you will volunteer to help out during our spring drive and see the great changes we have made. Thank you for your support!
